What is a Red Tag?
A red tag is a product warning tag placed on a gas appliance indicating it needs to be repaired or replaced. In some cases, the gas may have to be turned off by a licensed gas technician as a safety measure as the defective appliance could be hazardous to the residents of the home.
Warning tags are issued on appliances or piping systems that use natural gas – if a hazard exists, your local utility company is also notified once the tag has been applied.
This is to prevent the danger that may occur from a carbon monoxide leak.
There are two classifications of tags:
- Type A – This tag indicates there a severe problem and there is an immediate danger to the home. The technician is required by law to turn off the natural gas right away.
- Type B – This is a warning tag that indicates the appliance needs to be repaired or replaced, but there is no immediate danger to the home. The natural gas is not turned off, but your utility company is contacted, and you have a set period of time to address the problem. If not fixed within that time, the natural gas will be turned off.
